The Arkhyz mountain region located in the Republic of Karachayevo-Cherkessia is famous all over the Russian Federation. Purest natural mineral water is extracted here, in the North Caucasus Mountains, at the altitude exceeding a thousand feet above the sea level. In the Karachay language, Arkhyz means "a beautiful girl". Indeed, you can still see a heavenly sunny valley with unspoiled nature glory, in which, like in a mirror, spurs of mountains covered with relic fir and spruce groves admire their beauty.
All this makes Arkhyz a perfect region for a world — class tourist destination, comparable to the Austrian Ischgl and the Swiss Gstaad resorts. All necessary equipment will be provided here for skiers and cyclists, lovers of mountain climbing and white water rafting, snowboarding, paragliding and other extreme sports. The short-term prospects include health resort treatment, spa and environmental recreation facilities.
Arkhyz is located 200 km from Mineralnye Vody, with its large international airport. Not far from the resort is the village of Zelenchukskaya where an airport receiving flights from the Russian cities is to be opened. The nearest railway station is 95 km from the resort.
